Liverpool City Council has agreed a three-year deal with Liverpool Mutual Homes and Plus Dane Group to refurbish 95 in the Granby Four Streets.
LMH and Plus Dane will tackle vacant properties in Beaconsfield Road, Cairns Street, Ducie Street and Jermyn Street.
Separately, the Granby Community Land Trust, set up by local residents, will refurbish 10 properties in Cairns Street. The Northern Alliance Housing Co-op plans to refurbish a further five properties, also in Cairns Street.
The £14m regeneration programme is expected to include house sales for £1 under the council's new Homes for a Pound scheme aimed at bringing empty properties back into use.
Funding is now in place from Cluster of Empty Homes and Empty Homes Round 2 grants, and from the Registered Housing Providers. In addition the CLT and Co-op have secured private finance and Nationwide Foundation funding for the delivery of their schemes.
The proposals will bring at least 110 properties back into use by 2015, including 99 vacant council-owned properties.
Many of the streets in Granby, on the edge of Toxteth, have been boarded up for decades.
A procurement process is now underway to appoint a private sector partner to work with the council to develop proposals for a refurbishment and new-build scheme on cleared land on the south side of Ducie Street.
